saw the pictures chris christie and president obama toured the storm-ravaged coast of new jersey yesterday. christie knows who was there to help when new jersey needed it. so now the big question is christie going to stay with the man he had previously endorsed or will he throw his substantial weight behind president obama? don't hold your breath. okay. we'll get into that and a whole lot more here on the "full court press." first, here she is with a current news update today lisa ferguson out in los angeles. good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. campaign schedules are getting back on track today as romney heads to virginia and president obama has a very busy day ahead of him. first, he starts off the day in green bay, wisconsin for a rescheduled event that he had to cancel tuesday to deal with hurricane sandy. then he is off to nevada, colorado and ohio. yesterday, obama toured the aftermath of hurricane sandy in new jersey along with governor chris christie who had nothing but kind words for t
to survey the wost of the damage alongside the state's governor chris christie. the deadly storm responsible for 59 deaths according to the app and 59 billion in damage, ripped up boardwalks and left 2 million without power. governor christie has take an prominent role in the disaster recovery but also been content to share the spotlight with the president. despite the fact that christie remains a surrogate for the romney campaign, his praise of the commander in chief storm response has been oversized and unsensored, downright christy-en. this display of bipartisan has created confusion on both sides of the aisle. in today's "new york times" maureen dowd writes that, quote -- white house officials seem a bit flummoxed by christie's bear hug. they speculate christie who always puts chris fi first has decided it's better for his presidential ambitions to be a maverick blue state governor with a democratic chief executive exiting in 2016 than to have president romney and tea party republicans in congress pulling him to the extreme right for the next eight years. christie for his part shrugged o
. with the new jersey republican governor chris christie right at his side. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> there have been many, many major new developments all throughout the day. we want to bring you the latest developments right now. and we're going to begin with the big picture. the storm that started as hurricane sandy now being blamed for a total of 118 deaths. 68 of them in the caribbean and now 50 of them in the united states. the state with the highest death toll, new york state. 26 people in new york state have died. new york city struggling to try to get back to normal. as you see here, subway stations in lower manhattan, they are still totally flooded. they need to be drained. this is a dangerous situation developing. further upbound there is limited, limited subway service that should resume a little bit more as the hours continue. an ireporter sent us this amazing picture. brooklyn had power last night, lower manhattan did not. nationwide about 6 million people in 15 states and the district of columbia still do not have electricity. also, a quarter of cel
colleague, actually, governor christie said today, not much loss of life. this is all about stuff that can be replaced. >> and he's right. it can be replaced if we understand that government has a role in our lives. government has to be the key factor in helping that effort, that recovery effort. >> let's talk about that effort. let me go to david connorn. it seems to me that fema, there was a judgment made way back when in the '70s that government needs to be united. one focus by one man or woman, this guy, fugate's got to be good. you need like a baseball team, you need a manager, somebody to call the shots. >> and we see with more extreme weather happening in the last few years, it's more necessary to have a national, federalized approach, particularly in the planning and in the research, and tracking storms. that can't be done by 50 different states. i thought the president today was very smart when he spoke up in new jersey with governor christie. he thanked the congressional delegate for voting for fema funds. something that, of course, mitt romney -- >> well, anybody -- here's where
significant damages. martha: we heard from governor christie, he is very concerned about the whole state. i know he is trying to get up into a helicopter to look at some of the damage. the wind are still too strong out there for that. rick what can you tell us about that whole area? martha: that was live shot from seaside heights, new jersey. go ahead, rick. >> the damages are widespread. mike come around this way. just to give people an idea how deep this stand is on this particular road. this along, like, you know, getting front-end loader in here to scoop the sand off the streets. this is just one block of one community. there are communities up and down the new jersey coastline just like this. they saw several feet of water. all the dunes were breeched. they have been washed away. that sand is up and down the streets here. look how bad this oceanfront hotel was torn up. the fencing is knocked down. we saw pieces of houses float by us last night. you see where some of the debris is coming from. there are fences gone. there are pools carried away and businesses are just really, really hit
is that new jersey governor chris christy is now saying that people in the affected areas of new jersey, people affected by hurricane sandy can now vote electronically. they can vote by e-mail and they can vote by fax. it is an interesting turn. joe, what are you finding out about this? >> well, it's a very interesting turn, don. as you said, in response to the super storm, the governor has issued a directive. this is for misplaced voters that can submit ballot applications by e-mail or by fax to the county clerk. the clerk sends them a ballot and then they have to return that ballot by about 8:00 p.m. on tuesday. it sounds highly unusual. to some, it may sound off the wall. but the fact of the matter is, in an emergency situation, there is some precedent for it. the united states actually has a program for military and overseas voters to basically do very similar things. so chris christie is taking a page from that pramt aogram and trying to find out how new jersey voters are not disenfranchised. >> joe, i understand it's not just for the people who have been affected by the super stor
. president obama will be in new jersey touring the storm damage with governor christie. >>> welcome back. president obama will be in new jersey touring the storm damage with governor christie. >> the election is less than a week away. and sandy has blown both candidates off course. here is jonathan karl. >> reporter: mitt romney transformed the planned ohio rally into a bid to support relief efforts. >> we won't be able to solve all the problems with our efforts this morning. one of the things i learned in life is you make the difference you can. >> reporter: it has all the trappings of a traditional campaign event, stage, big american flag, campaign music, lots of romney supporters. but you also have over here canned goods and supplies that people have brought for victims of the storm. the storm put romney in a bind. while the president can lead relief efforts -- >> this is something heartbreaking for the nation. >> reporter: there's not much for romney to do beyond encouraging supporters to pitch in. with fema working overtime, democrats are hammering him for what he said at a debate w

in the affected areas, including governor christie, governor cuomo and mayor bloomberg. i want to praise them for the extraordinary work that they have done. you know, sadly we are getting more experience with these kinds of big impact storms along the east coast and the preparation shows. were it not for the outstanding work that they and their teams have already done and will continue to do in the affected regions, we could have seen more deaths and more property damage. so they have done extraordinary work, working around the clock. the coordination between the state, local and federal governments has been outstanding. obviously we're now moving into the recovery phase in a lot of the most severely affected areas. new jersey, new york in particular have been pounded by this storm, connecticut has taken a big hit. because of some of the work that has been done ahead of time, we have been able to get over a thousand fema officials in place, prepositioned. we have been able to get supplies, food, medicine, water, emergency generators to ensure that hospitals and law enforcement offices are ab
people are waiting six hours or long are to be able to get gas. he comes to town. he hugs chris christie, photo op and then heads off to vegas. your reaction? >> i would say a few things. number one, i think this is obama's katrina in which he is showing a complete lack of compassion. i can recall a speech he gave in denver in front of 70,000 fans in which he said if you elect me the winds will stop blowing and the oceans will not rise. what happened to the anointed one and messiah who could control natural events. this dropped out of the friendly skies for a quick photo op and back into the friendly skies and out to las vegas where he said no one should ever go again to raise money. i would say this right now to you, sean hannity, right now in butler county, the most critical county in ohio, 30,000 attended rallies wrapping up that carl cameron talked about two and a half, three hours ago which is the largest crowd. let me give you a little bit of ohio perspective. four years ago. >> sean: i want to stay on this point and then i want your full analysis of ohio because you know ohio bett
took a hard hit. many people in atlantic city chose not to evacuate and chris christie called out the mayor there for testimonying -- telling people it was okay to stay and not evacuate. chris christy said it was the wrong thing to do. if things are bad in new jersey he is prepared to sign a executive order to reschedule halloween for the kids of new jersey. >> we'll go to maria molina who is looking at the weather that has come and the weather in front ofulse. a major transformer blast. this picture said it all. check out the big apple left in the dark. in the bottom that is manhattan before and after the outrage. con ed said it could be a week before the repairs are made. maria? >> good morning, good to see you. impacts from sandy and the storm has weakened with maximum sustained winds at 90 miles per hour. and the center is 90 miles west of the philadelphia. the danger is not over. apart from the damage and flood water in new york city and down in new jersey, people will head out of doors and at some point today. there could be live wires and you can't see what is in the flood
-in-chief. governor christie wears that fleece that says chris christie, governor. do they need that? >> reporter: is there anybody that don't know chris christie is the governor? megyn: or obama is the president? >> reporter: you should get one that says anchor. megyn: they will say who cares. when the president speaks later today we are told he will use a moderate positive message in these final five days. taking a kinder, jernlter approach you might say. but with such a short amount of time is this too little too late for a campaign that's been criticized for its harsh attacks on governor romney? now to the aftermath of the monster storm that left millions in damage behind. mayor bloomberg says new york city homes to have power completely restored in 10 days and they are hoping to have water pulled out of the flooded subway tunnels. but there are questions about what was in those tunnels before water washed in. we are talking about millions of rats. >> reporter: normally the flooding drives the rats out of the tunnels onto the streets. the fear is you have these rats roaming over the streets o
was incredibly desire and last night governor chris christie made harsh words about those who chose not to evacuate. and saying the mayor had gone rogue and heeded people that can't need to heed. christie saying if you were stranded in atlantic city, you had to wait until daylight to be rescued. they just could not send emergency responders. and you can tell by the fact that even two dozen people who were at shelters had to be evacuated from the shelters because the flooding and the situation there got so bad. now of course overall, we'll have to wait until daylight for the damage lear to be assessed. we have high tide in just a few more hours which could possess more flooding risk, but people think the swors ovworst is over. >> we're glad you're still safe there. 8:37 is high tide and that is expected to bring more concerns about flooding. we'll check back in with her later this morning. the new york stock exchange and nasdaq will both be completely shut down for a second day in a row. the bond markets are closed today, as well. futures are continuing to trade. those prices will be
: he said we would cut through red tape. that is important to us. gov. chris christie declared an emergency a couple of days before the storm hit. president obama signed a declaration that was a critical and necessary first step. we have seen in the past that sometimes the bureaucracy moves slowly and the people on the ground need to help. and they do not get as quickly as they should. the president very publicly to the whole nation, and of course here in my district, he had the director of fema with him. and he said there was to beat no nonsense and we were to cut through the red tape. he gives all telephone numbers to call. and if there was any problem some counties are still doing assessments. a friend committees did their assessment yesterday. we should have -- de front communities did in their assessment yesterday. host: will there be enough funding from fema to cover the damages? what did you think will have to deal with when you return from the lame duck session? guest: that is a question i am getting more frequently. we do not know exactly because we do not know the tot
. governor chris christie, you heard him a little bit earlier. he said in some parts of atlantic city flooding is up to five feet. and also we heard from public safety director william glass who said the entire city of atlantic city is under water. the damage already worse than 1962 on the flooding side there. take a look at this picture from nbc 10's ted greenberg. parts of atlantic city boardwalk broken and floating down the street. that's from earlier this morning. we talked to all the casino operators from there on the boardwalk but still have no comment from them and their operations and how they will continue following this storm. long beach island is a popular vacation spot for wall street. nearly completely flooded right now. the ocean and the bay close to meeting in long beach island. let's also think about when this high tide is expected to hit later today. you can see the wind is picking up and the rain is picking up. we expect this to take place throughout the afternoon, guys. we will have more from cape may as we have it but you can see the storm is definitely ramping up.
. i guess i'm curious about is governor chris christie early on had said a lot of people never heed these warnings. when you think of that, michael? >> i think it is pushing a huge force of massive amounts of water onto these coastal communities. it really went out communities and change the cosine dramatically. neil: all the major power companies have said when power does go out, it's going to be out for a while. forget about how that impacts the election. it is going to make a lot of people very upset. >> it's about time of year. this window allows you to have a hurricane and having nor'easter and the trees are still picking up the win in rain. we have a lot of power. neil: michael, thank you very much. i just have this up with those cities and counties that have reported this. that is how i come up with that 1.5 million roughly 2 million already without power. that is my number here adding all of these. experts are far more knowledgeable in some areas. certainly by morning, the numbers will grow significantly. and then the question is upwards of 20 million plus without power. and
on wednesday with governor christie, and witnessed some of the terrible devastation firsthand. it's heartbreaking. families have lost loved ones. entire communities have been wiped away. even some of the first responders who repeatedly put themselves in harm's way to bravely save the lives of others have suffered losses of their own. today, i ask everyone to keep them in your prayers. and as president, i promise them this -- your country will be there for you for as long as it takes to recover and rebuild. throughout the week, i've been in constant contact with governors and mayors in the affected areas, who are doing an excellent job in extraordinarily difficult circumstances. and we owe the first responders and national guardsmen who have been working around the clock our deepest gratitude. our number one concern has been making sure that affected states and communities have everything they need to respond to and recover from this storm. from the earliest hours, i ordered that resources be made available to states in the path of the storm as soon as they needed them. and i instr
. christi christine? >> well, the report is two sides of the same coin. think of it that way. the jobs report is two separate surveys. the unemployment rate comes from a survey of 60,000 households and the jobs created survey comes from 141,000 businesses. to get the unemployment rate 2200 census workers interviewed 66,000 households. everyone is over 16 is classified as employed, unemploymented or not in the labor fost. then they extrapolate the rate. the job creation number comes from another sample which is the sample of 141,000 businesses who tell the government how many workers they have on the payroll. like the household survey, the sample is meant to reflect the whole u.s. and includes factories and stores and teachers and schools and both surveys look at a particular pay period, and usually around the 12th day of the month. so this month, it was the week of october 7th to october 13th. households were contacted the following week to find out if they had been looking for work or were looking for a job from the 7th to 13th. businesses submitted payroll information for roughly the
're probably about 50 positive 100 miles from where this is expected to make landfall. governor christie had a number of things to say to his constituents in new jersey. straight-talking governor. another sound bite from him. >> we want everybody to stay off the roads. we can't emphasize this enough. don't try to go out and be a hero or act as if nothing he's going on. it's important. we need to have you stay inside. >> coastal communities have been evacuated. from what we've seen so far here, soledad, the citizens of new jersey have taken heed to that warning given by the governor yesterday. 85-mile-an-hour wind, strengthening, category 1, sandy, and strengthening possible as it makes its way to the northeast coastline later today. >> thank you for the update. we're in columbus circle. you can see over my shoulder is central park. yesterday around 5:00 in the afternoon they started closing the park, kicking everybody out. the big issue is the trees. they lost some trees in hurricane irene. entire mass transit system as well for new york city has been shut down. that means there are no subwa
because of the hurricane. governor chris christie ordering all roads there to reopen. last year the casinos were closed when hurricane irene hit the coast. and that three-day shut down, cost 45 million dollars in lost revenue. got the police to detain a suspicious man at a sikh temple. they found am nation, zip ties, a notebook referencing the colorado movie theater shooting. and he says he was writing a book. the cops determined he was not a threat and released him. voters could change the constitution to allow them to use a limited amount of marijuana. some say it will send the wrong message to kids about drugs. oregon and washington had similar measures on their ballot. forget thanksgiving, the white house has eyes on christmas. the annual capitol christmas tree is on the way. this year's tree, 73 foot spruce from white refer national for rest in meeker, colorado and people came from all over the area to watch the tree come down and santa took part in the ceremony and will make many stops from the nearly 4,000 mile journey before ending up in the capital. so many trees down i
. with the declaration, by new jersey governor chris christie, 12 casinos are shutting down only the fourth team in 34 years so there is a common impact. amtrak announcing at 7:00 they will suspend services north of new york and, tomorrow, everything along the eastern seaboard for amtrak is not going to be running with the exception of a few trains in florida and north carolina. >>heather: we appreciate when our viewers help us tell the stories with will months expected to be hit by sandy. if you are dealing with the storm and you can safely, safely get a photo, e-mail it to us at www.foxnews.com and tell us where you are. you keepable see your picture on tv. again, be sure to stay safe in dangerous conditions and keep it here on fox. greg greg the debates are over and the finish line is in sight. what is the state of the race right now? governor romney is leading president obama by four points among likely voters 50-46 percent. now our campaign insiders, a former republican congressman for new york, john leboutillier, and pat caddell, former pollster for jimmy carter, and doug schoen a fox news contr
an update. millions people getting ready for the worst. new jersey governor chris christie once again as he did last time urging people to be ready. >> hard reality is even if we do everything within our power to prepare we can't stop the storm. bill: ohio, no republican ever won the white house without winning this critical state. i had a chance to sit down with senator robb portman. he is the leading surrogate for the romney team in the state asking how he thinks his party will fare on tuesday. >> i think it is tie right now momentum is on our side. before the debates we were down five to 10 points. we've had a steady movement our way ever since hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. that's a good thing, but it doesn't cover everything. only about 80% of your part b medical expenses. the rest is up to you. so consider an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan, insured by unitedhealthcare insuran
york? we have not heard from him at all? you see chris christie all the time? you do not see the governor of new york at all. host: we had a few stores and governor cuomo. but we can look for stories in this morning's paper. tell us how motivated you as a democrat are to go out to the polls and misery, and a state that is leaning pretty far to the republican column in the presidential race. is it to the senate race that will pull you out to the polls? caller: it is the president and senator. i really am a democrat die hard. i just cannot see any future with the republicans, what they are putting out there. host: carol from st. louis, thank you. we will go from hphil on our lie for independents, south carolina. good morning. caller: good morning. i want to make a couple of statements about mitt romney. i cannot understand how people trust romney like they do. knowing that he is the kind of person he is, he lies about everything. he lies about every situation. i cannot understand the people who vote republican all the time, how they both republican all the time. they are going
to here pat mccrory, the republican for governor and chris christie. this is his third trip to the state. he has campaigned so often, he says he is thinking of moving here. he has campaigned for the republican ticket. host: i'm sure they would miss the governor dearly if he were to leave new jersey and moved to north carolina. let's go to the phones -- our first caller is calling from asheville, n.c., on our line for independences. caller: rob, i'm surprised you did not mention that asheville is a very liberal city and textiles is not our primary industry. i live across the road from billy graham's compound. you did not bring up the fact that he removed mitt romney and mormon is and as a call from his list and has been controversial here. -- as a cult. for the last two years, republicans have been in control of north carolina, unfortunately. they get into abortion and voter i.d. which was defeated. going back to asheville, we are a liberal city. i have already voted for obama and i voted for him in 2008 and i think he is the answer for this country, not mid romney. host: talk to us. gues
and yesterday governor chris christie, who is certainly a straight talker, had these dire words of advice for his constituents. >> we want everybody to stay off the roads. again, you know, we can't emphasize this enough, don't try to go out there and be hero or act as if there's nothing going on here. something is happening. it's important. and we need to have you stay inside. >> so that's important advice because even if you don't live along the coastline the winds are going to be such that trees are going to come down. if you live in an area that has a lot of trees stay indoors and get down from the upper areas of your home to a lower entire yore room, and even sky scrapers, you know, soledad. you go up 30 floors in elevation, and that increases the winds by one category in hurricane strength. you're going to be feeling it across the high rises of manhattan, not to mention at the lower levels the storm surge is going to be of historic proportions. likely to be greater than irene. high tide across many of the beaches, communities, happening in the next couple of hours. and again tonight
, government being too intrusive? >> nobody's suggesting that governor christy still isn't indorsing and supporting governor romney. clearly, he has and continues to do so. the fact is -- of the matter is we don't want government, we want it to be efficient and positive and working for individuals, not against individuals. so governor romney never said we don't need fema. what he said it was the local and state governmental entities that were the first individuals in in a disaster. that's exactly true. >> let me say this, fredricka. let me say this as a member of the homeland security committee, i thank my good friend from georgia, we worked together, and i must say that president obama has worked in the last four years with republican members of congress. with senators, with house members on a number of different issues, patent law, a number of issues dealing with energy, a number of issues dealing with building up business opportunities. but the real policy questions that will help america, president romney to be if he's trying to be president, excuse me, is arguing that government
the president, those dramatic pictures with chris christie, someone he normally doesn't agree with, a democrat and a republican coming together in new jersey a couple of days back to show their support for the people there. but the key here obviously it's one thing to have those kind of events, it's one of those things for people to come together to have conference calls to communicate, but the key is will the federal government really be helping people on the ground in these states and local governments to make sure as we see these desperate pictures of people, people freezing, going into dumpsters to get food, is in fact the response helping get to them? and once the politicians leave the photo ops, once the tv cameras leave the scene is that response really happening? that is going to be one of the big questions in the days ahead, martha. martha: you're so right about that. one of the questions that comes to mind for me is will we expect another briefing from the president, you know, on what he's been updated on and what the red cross efforts are and what the fema efforts are? there is no d
